Happy weekend to you!!!! School is back in session this week and we made it through the first half week of it! My shopping this weekend was at three stores: Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter and Food Lion (yes Food Lion). Here is what I got:
Bi-Lo: This week I am starting with my Bi-Lo trip because I did not spend anything at Bi-Lo today. Bi-Lo actually owed me $1.74. The manager closed the register before I realized it so I left $1.74 at the store (boo, hoo, hoo). Nevertheless, I got $86.76 worth of items, for $0.00, saving 100%.
So how did I do this? In July, I received a coupon booklet from BJ’s in the mail. When we had the August Fort Mill Coupon Club meeting at the Fort Mill Bi-Lo, I asked Mr. Damien Britt (Store Director) is I could use the coupons here. He told me I could use them, but to check for the sizes. Last night I went through the booklet and found several that did not specify a size. So I stacked these coupons with manufacturer coupons when possible and had overage. I also used some Walgreens coupons and a $10/$40 Harris Teeter coupon on this trip. You can look at the picture and see everything that I got for free. The Hot Shot Bug spray are B1G1 for $1.88. The sprays had $.55 coupons attached to them and I stacked with $2 Walgreens coupons to get them all for free. The Walgreens coupon expires today (8/25). The Hormel Kids meal is also B1G1 for $.99 and I used a $1 manufacturer coupon to get it for free. There is also a $.55/1 coupon from the 8/19 Smartsource, but I forgot to bring them to the store. (aw man)
Food Lion: I went to Food Lion for two reasons: to get ground beef for $1.99 per pound and Front Porch Ice Cream. The Front Porch Ice Cream are B1G1 for $1.99 and I used (2) $2.50/2 manufacturer coupons to make them $.75 each.
Harris Teeter: Boy did I have an experience at Harris Teeter today! As I told you last week, we now have two HTs in Fort Mill. I decided to visit my regular one to shop since it is closer to Bi-Lo. I wanted to do the General Mills promotion where when you buy $30 in General Mills products, you get a $10 gas card (it prints out a code for you to enter online to receive the gas card by mail). Since there are several GM products I buy, I thought this would be worth the effort. I printed out a copy of the promotion flyer that I got in my email and showed it to the cashier to let her know I wanted to do a separate transaction for this deal. She took the flyer to the Customer Service Manager who informed that this promotion is not valid at this location and that I need to go to the new Harris Teeter to do this deal. WHAT! So I put the items back, pay for the other EVIC items I was getting and head to the NEW Harris Teeter. I check with the manager and he says yes the code should print when I checkout. Well guess what? It did not print out!!! GEEZ! I spent 30 minutes at customer service and basically was told I they will contact me after emailing corporate to figure out how to get me my gas card. So two trips, I spent $33.81 for $145.31 worth of items, saving 75%. I used a $5/$25 Dollar General coupon, $10/$40 Harris Teeter coupon and $1 Catalina coupon on these transactions.
FREE ITEMS: (6) Franks Red Hot Sauce, (1) HT B-6 Vitamins – I had a $2 EVIC toward these. The price tag says they were B1G1 for $3.99 ($1.99), but they did not ring up correctly. I was able to get them for free due to the scan guarantee policy.
$2.00 or Less: (8) Yoplait Light Yogurt for 20 cents each, (2) Davidson’s Eggs for 35 cents, (2) Morningstar Frozen Entrees for 49 cents each, (6) Hamburger Helper for 50 cents, (2) Old Cape Cod Popped Crisps for 59 cents each, (2) Lance Crackers for 67 cents, (5) Pillsbury Breakfast Sandwiches for 71 cents, (6) Totino’s Pizza Rolls for 81 cents each, (4) Picsweet Corn for $1 each, (4) Yoplait Gogurts for $1.15 each (the boxes had code for free movie tickets), (4) Sargento Cheese for $1.27 each
Stay tuned to see what happens with the gas card from the General Mills promotion. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!!!
